2019 Grammy nominations: 'Black Panther,' Cardi B, Drake score big

"Black Panther" scored Golden Globes nominations Thursday, and on Friday morning it was revealed that the soundtrack to the Marvel smash hit led the 2019 Grammy nominations as well.

Kendrick Lamar, who curated the "Black Panther" soundtrack, scored eight Grammy nominations, including Album, Song and Record of the Year.

Following closely behind was Drake, with seven nominations, including the aforementioned "big three" categories.

Cardi B, Lady Gaga, H.E.R., Maren Morris, Childish Gambino, each earned five Grammy nominations.

Six of the eight best new artist nominees are women, including H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.

Female performers were underrepresented in the top four categories and in the awards broadcast at the Grammys earlier this year, but will have a strong presence at the upcoming show.

Five of the eight artists behind the album of the year nominees are women, including Cardi B (for "Invasion of Privacy"), Kacey Musgraves (for "Golden Hour"), Janelle Monae (for "Dirty Computer"), H.E.R. (for  "H.E.R.") and Carlile (for "By the Way, I Forgive You").
